Cat With Dandruff

OUR 2 YEAR OLD TUXEDO CAT HAS STARTED TO SHOW DANDRUFF. SHE EXHIBITS NO OTHER CHANGES. HOW COULD WE TREAT THIS? 

A result of dry skin, dandruff presents as white flakes throughout the haircoat. Although not typically a serious disease unless severe, it can be unattractive. For mild cases, make sure your pet is on a high quality food and consider fish oil (omega-3) supplementation. Fish oil can improve haircoat quality as well as promote healthy joints. In addition, topical management of the haircoat is important. Keeping cats at a healthy weight can allow them to more easily groom themselves, preventing mats and dandruff. And you can also help remove those extra flakes by routinely brushing your cat. Other topical options like moisturizing shampoos, sprays, or mousses may be available from your veterinarian. For severe cases, examination by a veterinarian may help to rule out underlying skin infections or conditions that may require more specific treatment.

    Very nice pet hospital. We were extremely pleased. Impressed by the education they give you as well. Our dog had her teeth cleaned and the nurse spent 10 minutes going over post-op procedures. Also we needed to come back in one week to have sutures looked at and they don't charge you an office visit for that like Leader Heights Animal Hospital would do

    I am extremely happy with the care that my puppy Cody received when he had his recent hip surgery. I highly recommend Patton Veterinary Hospital.

    The entire staff is courteous, friendly, and helpful. They all seem to have a true love for all pets. They follow-up promptly and we have never had a problem with any of the doctors (Dr. Doug is our primary) or any of the other staff.
